Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams is expected to make a full recovery after being stabbed in the stomach during an apparent robbery attempt in Pittsburgh on Saturday morning.

The Steelers confirmed the incident on their official site.

"We are aware of the situation regarding Mike Adams being stabbed earlier this morning," Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said. "We are in direct communication with both Mike and his family. Mike is expected to make a full recovery."

NFL.com's Aditi Kinkhabwala spoke with Adams' agent, Eric Metz, who said three assailants allegedly tried to steal Mike Adams' truck from in front of his home. Metz said Adams told him he gave chase even after being stabbed. Adams had just left some friends a few minutes before and was alone.

No vital organs were affected, but the stomach injury did necessitate surgery. Adams will be sidelined six to eight weeks, but Metz says Adams definitely will be ready for training camp.

Pittsburgh police did not immediately respond to a request for more information by NFL.com. Metz told the Post-Gazette that one of the robbers dropped a cell phone, which police had recovered. UPMC Mercy, where Adams was reportedly treated, would not comment on his status.

A member of the Steelers security staff told Metz, all things considered, "Mike was very lucky."

Adams addressed the incident on his Twitter page.

Adams, a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, started six of the 10 games he played in last season. He is a candidate to succeed Max Starks as Pittsburgh's starting left tackle.

UPDATE: Adams later posted a picture from his hospital bed on Twitter.
